With apologies to Thomas a Becket and Gregory VII

But you know...times change.

I really wish the Church would, aside from all of its processes to determine what to do with an accused priest in terms of his priesthood, just go ahead and send out a letter to every Catholic saying, "If you have been a victim of abuse by a priest or other church employee, please go to the civil authorities. We will cooperate with them. But please go to the police or district attorneys or child and family services first and let them take the lead in determining the nature of the case. We just can't do it."

Here's why.
